When You Don't Want Thread Center Stage

I was hopeing I might get to leave the sock monkeys without much more than the securing stitches around the edges, but I should have known better, This first pic. is how the sock monkey's looked when I took the quilt off the long arm where ofcourse the monkeys were perfectly flat and looked great.
A bit of foreshortening here based on the camera angle.

I never wanted thread to compete with the sock monkey material which represents a knitted sock texture. So monofilament will help here.... by using simple wavy lines following the "knitting" pattern.
I think this will do the trick.
